BOTOX Sends Your Frown Out Of Town

Many people feel that it would be great to turn back the hands of time. But if that was possible, you may do some irreparable harm to society. If you’ve watched a lot of science-fiction films, you will understand. So let’s stop living in the land of fiction and consider what we can legitimately do to reverse the signs of aging. After all, our physical appearances are what makes us most aware of how much time has passed.  Botox the frown eraser might the the treatment for you.

There isn’t much we can do to combat Mother Nature. Or is there? Time will keep ticking, of course. But when those facial lines and wrinkles appear on our faces, we tend to get upset with the fact that aging is inevitable. It doesn’t have to look that way though. Of course, there are a number of ways that we can treat the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

And, for many people, these ways have made things worse. Face lifts require cutting of the skin. And who really wants to do that? BOTOX the frown eraser on the other hand, is a prescription medicine that is injected into specific areas of the face to simply help for facial muscles to relax. This promotes the smoothening out of skin and the disappearance of lines around the eyes and mouth.

The result? A much more youthful look. And no time travel is necessary. The thing is, many people fear needles as much as they do scalpels. So are BOTOX injections all that safe and painless by comparison to face lifts? A YouTube video:

posted by Total Beauty TV answers this question by demonstrating just how comfortable patients are when receiving the injections.

In the video, Dr. Anna Guanche, who is a Dermatologic Surgeon, performs a BOTOX injection on a patient named Kristin. Firstly, she asks her patient to frown so that it can be demonstrated how significant the frown lines are between the eyebrows. Dr. Guanche explains which muscles in the face actually cause those frown lines as well. She notes that a “series of injections” is necessary so that each muscle causing the frown lines is relaxed.

When Dr. Guanche begins performing the BOTOX injections, she asks Kristin how bad the pain is. “Not bad at all,” is the response. Overall, the entire procedure is shown to be both a quick and pain free one. The doctor also reveals that within three to seven days, significant results will be seen. The before and after shots of Kristin show a remarkable change in the frown lines on her forehead.

As you can imagine, the after shots show no wrinkles in between her eyebrows. In addition, it is noticeable that there are no marks or scarring of any kind in the after shots. Dr. Guanche comments to Kristin that for fifteen minutes after the treatment, it may appear as if she has “bug bites” where the injections took place. However, it is clear that they are quickly healed.

Face lifts, on the other hand, require quite the amount of down time. If you’re afraid of needles and knives, it’s hard to blame you. But you should rest assure that the needle is far less painful than the knife. Consult your doctor to see if BOTOX the frown eraser is the ideal solution for your frown lines.
